                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SOLVEN this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, JILIAN NORMAN fought VETERAN 
MERCENARY and gained 18 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 15's 2-3-0.  GORLON 
INTHUR has lost to KOBAYASHI, falling 9 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 15 a 
2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HATE MY LIFE 
remains SOLVEN's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SOLVEN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding KELLUMBO'S KIDS more than any other team we find SERPENTS 
HOLD.  SOLVEN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports 
fans, take notice that HETFIELD from SERPENTS HOLD was SOLVEN's most challenged 
warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in SOLVEN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
